Bullish on the prospects of medical tourism and the outpatient health care industry in the Philippines, Century Properties Group, Inc. said it has started unit turnovers this month at Centuria Medical Makati – its 28-story outpatient medical-IT facility at Century City in Kalayaan Avenue, Makati – in time for its 2015 opening.

The USD$70-million medical facility has close to 700 medical suites for physicians of different outpatient medical practices. Inclusive in the 700 units are over 7,000-sqm that Century will retain for its own leasing portfolio.

Hi-Precision Diagnostics will operate Centuria’s diagnostic laboratory. Other facilities and services that will complement the practice of doctors within the building include an Executive Health Screening Program, a Radiology Center, a hospital-grade Day Surgery Center and Recovery Suites.

Century Properties said the building is expected to open in 2015 after the tenants complete their unit fit outs.

“Centuria is a new-age medical arts building that goes beyond providing clinic spaces to doctors. It provides the support medical facilities and IT tools so that doctors can focus on delivering quality care to their patients,” said Century Properties Chairman Jose E.B. Antonio, who personally saw through the Centuria project to maximize the country’s opportunities for medical tourism.

Situated in front of the Century City Mall, Centuria Medical Makati has the advantage of location. It completes the integrated development of Century City, which comprises premium residential towers, offices and the mall. The building is also close to hotels, major banking institutions, and the Makati CBD.
